Hello, my name is Lilit. I am working on a project for my graduate class where I'm to research a country (and i chose Brazil) and its use of technology in education. More specifically, I am looking for an educator in Brazil who would be willing to answer few questions about integration of technology into their educational system. The interview can be done via phone, email, skype, or any other means that are convenient for you. 
Thanks in advance for your help,

Hey Almerinda!

Good to hear from you- I think it went well considering the fact that we jumped in so quickly. That was fun! We should try again next year and really plan out something even better.
